Corporate Executives Photo-shoot in Mumbai

Photography of Corporate Executives in Mumbai

Here are some of the photographs clicked for a corporate house in Mumbai. The entire shoot was done within a span of 4 hours! Over 100 photographs were clicked and the final results were re-touched to produce the best images.

These corporate photographs were used for their annual report, website etc.

 Group Photographs


Group photography of executives is always challenging, as there are always chances that some member in the photograph may have their eyes closed or their mouth open. In some cases, one of the executives maybe looking not at the photographer / lens, but distracted by some activity / person next to the photographer / outside the window /door. 

Multiple shots are always taken in rapid succession, so that at-least one of the photographs has all the people posing in the desired manner. 

Another trick, that sometimes works is: tell all the participants to close their eyes and open them at the count of three! At that very moment the photograph is taken along with the flash, that ensures better chances of better good photograph.

In some case, we may have to restore to editing, by juxtaposing the photographs in an image editing software and them carefully edit the image, so that in the final photograph, everyone is "looking" at the photographer and we get the perfect shot.

Photographs of the individual executives, is much simpler as compared to the group shots. There are various options that can be explored for the photography. Some people have a natural broad smile, that showcases them in the best light.

For male executives, I generally tend to post them at an angle of 30 to 45 degrees to the camera, so that they do not look "squarish" and there is elegance in their pose.

For female executives, depending on the background, their clothes and accessories, I make them pose with facing front to the camera.  In case, the person does not have a great wide smile, that shows the teeth and slight smiling pose should be good enough.

Post processing of the executive photographs

As per the project requirements, extensive post processing of the photographs may be done, so that "model" like portrait photographs can be achieved. The editing can be done either in Adobe Photo Shop or a dedicated software like Portrait Professional.

The general steps involved are: removal of birthmarks, whitening of the eyes, removal of wrinkles, blemishes removal etc.

360 Degree Video of Silver Idol

360 Degrees Video of Silver Idol

Here is a video of a sterling silver idol of Radha-Krishna on black background: 



Video shoot of this type involves planning and preparation. 

A turntable was employed to rotate the product in 360 degrees. One 1000W halogen light was used to illuminate the product. The light was kept behind the camera mounted on a  sturdy tripod.

The basic level editing was done in Microsoft Movie maker, that has the basic level of tools required to make this video, that was shot on a full frame Canon 6D camera and Canon 24-105mm f/4 lens.

The rotation duration of the turn table was 95 seconds per rotation, which was increased in the video editor by 6x, so that the resulting video is faster and showcases the product at a decent and comfortable pace to the view.

Complete manual focus was employed so that the final video of the product is sharp and no shallow DOF[Depth Of Focus] is visible.In these type of videos, shallow DOF will result in a blurred and out of ficus image video.

There are several products that taken up for 360 degree video shoots, provided they are light weight and they can placed to the turn table.

In order, to ensure that he back ground is completely black, we ensured that no light spills on the black paper / black velvet cloth used at the backdrop material.

We can add many different type / kinds of background but one of the best one would be the black, so that the viewers attention is one the product and not distracted by the coloured / patterned background.

The video shooting was done at our studio in Vashi - Navi Mumbai.
